Flying A Communist Balloon: “The Squad” Is Not A New Phenomenon

HOLLYWOOD, FL – They are called “The Squad,” four darlings of the far left in the House of Representatives, beating the drums for Marx, and drawing fire from the right, as though they were the cadre of the Fifth Column, proponents a new Socialist movement in American government. Nothing could be more uninformed.

Yes, Rashida Tlab is calling for legislation designed to take money from the rich, which according to her, they did not earn, in order to give it to the poor, who according to her, worked for it. But isn’t that more or less what California’s healthcare measure is doing by providing free healthcare coverage for illegal aliens, while forcing the people of California to foot the bill?

The left invaded Congress long ago. In any given Congress, about 70 members of Congress are registered members of  DSA (Democratic Socialists of America). It is true that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an outspoken, card-carrying member of DSA, but so is Maxine Waters.

National membership in DSA ballooned from 6,745 in 2016 to more than 31,000 in 2018. So to focus on the Squad as an isolated anomaly is an error. The popularity of leftist ideology is far more pervasive than four loudmouths in the House. Anyone who doubts it need only review the agenda items of the 20 Democrat Party candidates who participated in the recent presidential debates.

Remember that neither Congressional Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) nor Senate Majority Leader Charles “Chuck” Schultz (D) was able, when interviewed by Chris Matthews, to explain the difference between the Socialist Party and the Democrat Party.

Remember that the Communist Party sued the Democrat Party for stealing its platform. If the Communist Party views the Democrat Party’s platform as a mirror reflection of itself, who are we to think otherwise?

Tammy Baldwin, junior senator from Wisconsin since 2013, is a member of DSA. So is Jerrold Nadler, who has served as congressional representative from New York since 1992. So are Maxine Waters, Hank Johnson, Barbara Lee, Linda Sanchez, and dozens of other members of Congress. And all of them are registered Democrats.

What is DSA, to which so many Democrat members of Congress belong. DSA is the largest American affiliate of Socialist International, that international coalition of Socialist, Democratic Socialist, and Labor Party organizations that embrace, espouse, and promote principles and measures and policies antithetical to the Constitution of the United States, and to the principles of freedom and rights beloved by Americans since 1776.

But Socialists began to infiltrate Congress more than 100 years ago, at the dawn of the 20th Century.  So why is it that the Squad is now being labelled as something unusual in American politics, something not before seen in Congress, while the presence there of leftists is nothing new but actually common?

It seems that this phenomenon is a balloon now being flown, in the period leading up to the 2020 presidential campaigns, intending to energize support from the left wing of America, in order to provoke a movement that might present a credible, forceful opposition to the achievements of the Trump Administration. It seems like a desperate attempt to resurrect the corpse of America’s Socialist agenda in Congress.

The Squad is nothing new. The Squad is simply the latest effort by leftist rebels to appeal to Americans, and gain momentum in the perpetual quest for power in the struggle to implement Socialist policies leading to totalitarianism in America.

The Squad is a Communist balloon being flown in the hope that generations of successfully indoctrinated graduates from American public education will grab onto its string and join the movement to eradicate rule of constitutional law.
